I This was that Sir Robert Constable of most infamous memory, who, eight years afterwards, endeavoured, under the garb of friendship, to entrap the Earl of Westmorland, after the failure of his rebellion in 1569.-V. Sadler's State Papers II., 21, 57, 97, 118. A more detestable character does not pollute the pages of history. He was son and heir of Sir Marmaduke Constable, to whom the site and possessions of the Benedictine Nunnery of Nun Eaton, in Warwickshire, had been granted after the Dissolution; and at the date of the above will resided at Wallington, having married Dorothy, widow of Sir Roger Fenwick. He was at the same time owner of Nun Eaton (the Nowneton of the will), of which the husband of the Testatrix had probably been the tenant. The motives which had induced this Warwickshire lady to desert her county and friends, are partly alluded to in the will. The reasons why she appointed Sir Robt. Constable her residuary legatee, are, perhaps, for his sake as well forgotten.
